If you have hard water leaving limescale and soap scum on your sinks and faucets like I do, you already know how stubborn it can be. Even after cleaning with your ordinary cleaner, the limescale remains. Luckily a simple way to remove it is likely already in your kitchen: a lemon!
Step one: Cut a lemon in half and rub limescale well with lemon. Let sit 10 minutes.
Step two: After 10 minutes has passed, scrub at the limescale with a scrubby brush. The limescale should loosen and flake off fairly easily. You can also try scraping the limescale off with a finger nail instead of a scrubby brush or try a pot scraper if you have one. What ever you use, make sure it won’t scratch up your surface too much.
Step three: Rinse thoroughly.
If the lemon and scrubbing doesn’t remove the limescale fairly easily, Rub with lemon again, wait ten more minutes, and scrub some more. Easy, right?
